    "A Country Boy Can Survive"

    The preacher man says it's the end of time

    And the Mississippi River she's a-goin' dry

    The interest is up and the Stock Market's down

    And you only get mugged if you go downtown

    I live back in the woods, you see

    My woman and the kids, and the dogs, and me

    I got a shotgun, a rifle, and a 4-wheel drive

    And a country boy can survive

    Country folks can survive

    I can plow a field all day long

    I can catch catfish from dusk 'til dawn

    We make our own whiskey and our own smoke, too

    Ain't too many things these old boys can't do

    We grow good old tomatoes and homemade wine

    And a country boy can survive

    Country folks can survive

    Because you can't starve us out

    And you can't make us run

    'Cause we're them old boys raised on shotgun

    And we say "grace" and we say "Ma'am"

    And if you ain't into that we don't give a damn

    We came from the West Virginia coal mines

    And the Rocky Mountains and the western skies

    And we can skin a buck; we can run a trotline

    And a country boy can survive

    Country folks can survive

    I had a good friend in New York City

    He never called me by my name, just hillbilly

    My grandpa taught me how to live off the land

    And his taught him to be a businessman

    He used to send me pictures of the Broadway nights

    And I'd send him some homemade wine

    But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife

    For 43 dollars my friend lost his life

    I'd love to spit some beech nut in that dude's eyes

    And shoot him with my old .45

    'Cause a country boy can survive

    Country folks can survive

    'Cause you can't starve us out and you can't make us run

    'Cause we're them old boys raised on shotgun

    And we say "grace" and we say "Ma'am"

    And if you ain't into that we don't give a damn

    We're from North California and South Alabama

    And little towns all around this land

    And we can skin a buck; we can run a trotline

    And a country boy can survive

    Country folks can survive

    Country boy can survive

    Country folks can survive

    Growing up in the long shadow of a parent is daunting in itself, let alone growing up in the footsteps of one of the most influential singer/songwriters in the 20th century. Hank Williams Jr. was born cloaked in his father’s legacy, and he initially stepped on stage to cover Hank Williams‘ songs.

    In the 1970s, however, Hank Williams Jr. forged his own musical direction and solidified his own place in country music history. After playing with southern rock artists like Waylon Jennings, Toy Caldwell, and Charlie Daniels, Williams Jr. produced his breakthrough album.

    Titled Hank Williams Jr. and Friends, the singer/songwriter officially broke from his father’s influence with the 1975 record. Then seven years later, Williams Jr. released his most signature single, “A Country Boy Can Survive.”

    We came from the West Virginia coal mines / And the Rocky Mountains, and the western skies / And we can skin a buck, we can run a trotline / And a country boy can survive / Country folks can survive, Williams Jr. sings on the track.

    On the surface, these lyrics glorify a southern, middle-class lifestyle. Yet, cultural and personal influences swirl under the surface of “A Country Boy Can Survive.”

    Williams Jr. was not, in fact, born in West Virginia, the Rocky Mountains, or even under the western skies as he mentions in the song. The country artist was born in Shreveport, Louisiana. Consequently, these lyrics seem to be speaking to a larger phenomenon of the ’80s, outside of Williams Jr. himself. More specifically, Williams Jr. is boldly upholding the country boy and country folks as the champions against urbanization.

    I had a good friend in New York City / He never called me by my name, just Hillbilly / My grandpa taught me how to live off the land / And his taught him to be a businessman, Williams Jr. sings.

    He used to send me pictures of the Broadway nights / And I’d send him some homemade wine / But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife / For 43 dollars, my friend lost his life.

    Williams Jr. continues to lean into this idealization of country living over that of the big city. ‘Cause you can’t starve us out and you can’t make us run / ‘Cause we’re them old boys raised on shotguns, he sings.

    Part of this intensity may also be due to Williams Jr.’s near-death experience in southwestern Montana in August 1975. While climbing the Ajax Peak on the continental divide, Williams Jr. fell on a rock after the snow beneath him gave way. He suffered several facial and skull fractures from the fall, and he eventually had to relearn how to sing. This event and Williams Jr.’s subsequent recovery empowered the country singer.

    “A Country Boy Can Survive” resonated with innumerable music fans, and the song peaked at the number two spot on the Billboard Hot Country Singles charts in March 1982.

    After the song’s initial success, Williams Jr. released another version of the track titled “America Will Survive” after the tragedy of 9/11. The country music artist also joined the ranks of Country Music Hall of Famers this past year as a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame Class of 2020.

    A Country Boy Can Survive Lyrics

    [Verse 1]

    The preacher man says it's the end of time

    And the Mississippi River, she's a-goin' dry

    The interest is up and the stock market's down

    And you only get mugged if you go downtown

    I live back in the woods, you see

    My woman and the kids and the dogs and me

    I got a shotgun, a rifle and a 4-wheel drive

    And a country boy can survive, country folks can survive

    [Verse 2]

    I can plow a field all day long

    I can catch catfish from dusk 'til dawn

    We make our own whiskey and our own smoke, too

    Ain't too many things these old boys can't do

    We grow good ol' tomatoes and homemade wine

    And a country boy can survive, country folks can survive

    [Chorus]

    Because you can't starve us out and you can't make us run

    'Cause we're them old boys raised on shotguns

    And we say grace and we say Ma'am

    If you ain't into that we don't give a damn

    [Verse 3]

    We came from the West Virginia coal mines

    And the Rocky Mountains and the western skies

    And we can skin a buck, we can run a trotline

    And a country boy can survive, country folks can survive

    And his taught him to be a businessman

    He used to send me pictures of the Broadway nights

    And I'd send him some homemade wine

    And little towns all around this land

    And we can skin a buck, and run a trotline

    About

    Genius Annotation

    Released in 1982, “A Country Boy Can Survive” became a signature song for Hank Williams Jr., one of the most prolific artists in country music.

    The song describes and praises the country way of living. While educated city-dwellers and suburbanites may look down on their rural neighbors, they should remember that those “rednecks” can hunt, grow what they need, and defend themselves. In this age of technology, people who are used to getting things quickly and easily can forget how difficult life can be without smartphones, internet, electricity or food. As Hank Williams Jr. reminds us: “A country boy can survive.”

    It’s “we say Grace, we say Amen”. Not “Ma'am”

    Paranoid apocalyptic delusions meets Waco-cultist power fantasies. Who’s trying to ‘starve out’ anybody? I heard this song a billion times in the 80s and 90s, but it’s insidious idiocy only really struck me on a recent relisten.
